After a breakup, you find yourself trying to fill in the days. You think about everything that went wrong and how happy you once were. Personally, I’ve found that the best way to get over someone is with a rebound. Rebounding has helped me move on. The rebound, however, serves newly single women in more ways than just filling a void. Here are some reasons why having a rebound may just be a necessity.
A rebound keeps your mind occupied. You won’t catch yourself thinking about your last relationship. He serves as a distraction from your longing feelings as well as all the hurt. You are immersing yourself in this new faux relationship to create positive feelings again.
A rebound provides comfort. As women, our thoughts and feelings around the time of a breakup can get the best of us. The rebound can serve as a comfort in your time of need, or until you feel ready to love again.
A rebound is stress free. A rebound rarely lingers or causes drama. And that’s the beauty of them! They should last no more than three months.
Once it’s over, you won’t even remember what’s his name. But don’t forget to appreciate your rebound; without them, it may have taken longer for you to move on. Here’s a big thank you to all the rebounds out there. Now, get to dribbling.
